Little Gather: Madcap Puppets Twain's Twisted Tales

July 23, 2014 11:00am to 12:00pm
Little Gather: Madcap Puppets Twain's Twisted Tales

Introduce little ones to the Museum through FREE storytelling, puppet shows, music, and lots of fun! 

Madcap is proud to introduce the life and stores of one of America's greatest literary figures and humorists with giant puppets and audience participation! Join us as Clara's ordinary day takes an unexpected twist when Mark Twain's most beloved characters escape from her book! Putting them back where they belong is going to take help from Mr. Twain himself. Some of the stories included are: The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, Legend of Sagenfeld, and selections from The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

Stay after the performance and explore gallery objects related to the day's theme. Visit the Glass in America galleries after the show to see glass from when Mark Twain lived. 

The Southeast Steuben County Library will be on site for each Little Gather Family session at 11 am, offering selected pieces from their collection centered around the Little Gather theme of the week. Bring your local library card to check out these items and further enhance your Little Gather experience at home.

Bring your family at 11 am. Groups can attend a special 9:30am show. Groups MUST register (space is limited) by calling 607.438.5113 or emailing
